人間には
憂鬱なイメージの
雨も、
 
植物たちには
恵みの雨、だったり
するのでしょうか。
 
緑が深まって、
なんとなく
みんな元気そう。

突然の強風や
虫の食害、
落ち着かない天候による病気など
あいかわらず
肩を落とすことも
少なくないですが、
 
それでも新芽を伸ばし
花を咲かせる
ちいさな庭の仲間たちに
こころ救われる6月。

6月といえば、
紫陽花たちも
よく咲いてくれています。
 
バラは
四季咲きのものが
次の蕾を
上げ始めています。

 
畑では
そろそろ
収穫できそうなものが
ちらほら。

夏が、
やってくるんですねぇ。

My vision of an artist :)

For me, we are all a part of an amazing garden, each of us making a part of it And we are all a little seed falling on the ground of being an artist.

The flowers represent our passion and like in a garden, many types exists !

When we know what we love the adventure begins, we meet amazing artists that will inspire us to grow up !

Flowers needs the rain to grow up, so your passion will need some difficulties to grow as well. Après la pluie vient le beau temps- After the rain comes the sun !

And then at your turn you will inspire the young and new flowers to grow as well ! 


For the talented artists I used the colors of the flowers to show the directions they chose, many went to lots of them while some artists preferred to only chose one (like the lion and the white flowers) since, the flower on the tail is red, that means that choosing one direction can lead you to another one in the futur, who know ? You don’t see it yet :)


I hope this little reminder will help you keeping going !! Always keep it up and KEEP GOING !!


Bonne chance :) that means Good luck in French ^^

Fan art for chapter 3 of Lampadaires Sous la Pluie by @xuan-timewrite! PLEASE CHECK IT OUT GUYS BECAUSE IT HAS SUCH INTERESTING PREMISE.

Took some creative liberties on Yuuri’s scythe because I may be missing something from the fic I AM SORRY.

I personally like the version without Yuuri’s glasses, but just in case I post both. Also yes, I suck at background

the signs as french sayings

aries: “chien qui aboie ne mord pas.” barking dogs seldom bite.

taurus: “quand il pleut, il verse.” when it rains it pours.

gemini: “il faut laisser aller le monde comme il va.” we must let the world go as it is.

cancer: “bon coeur ne peut mentir.” a good heart can’t lie.

leo: “à coeur vaillant rien d’impossible.” nothing is impossible for a willing heart.

virgo: “il faut reculer pour mieux sauter.” one must step back to take a good leap.

libra: “il n’y a qu’un bonheur dans la vie, c’est d’aimer et d’être aimé.” there is only one happiness in life; to love and be loved.

scorpio: “la nuit porte conseil.” the night brings advice.

sagittarius: “après la pluie, le beau temps.” after rain comes sunshine.

capricorn: “il n’y a pas plus sourd que celui qui ne veut pas entendre.” no one is as deaf as the one who does not want to listen.

aquarius: “c'est l'exception qui confirme la règle.” it’s the exception that proves the rule.

pisces: “la foi est la moitié de la bataille.” faith is half the battle.

French Quotes about life

These are basically some of the quotes on life that I’ve read and loved!

1. Je pense, donc je suis- I think, therfore I am. This is the French version of the Latin phrase Cogito ergo sum.

2. Le temps est un grand maître, dit-on. Le malheur est qui’il tue ses éléves- We say that time is a great teacher. Too bad it kills all its students.

3. L’enfer, c’est les autres- Hell is other people.

4. Qui vivra verra- He/she who lives, shall see. I think this the French version of Time will tell.

5. Et d’abord, ne pas nuire- First, do no harm.

6. Quand on a pas ce que l’on aime, il faut aimer ce que l’on a- When one doesn’t have what he/she loves, he/she must love what they do have.

7. La vie ce n’est pas d’attendre que les orages passent, c’est d’apprendre a danser sous la pluie- Probably the most cliched line on the list, it means- Life isn’t about waiting for the storms to pass, it’s about learning how to dance in the rain.

8. Le bonheur est parfois caché dans l’inconnu- Happiness is sometimes hidden in the unknown.

9. Vouloir, c’est pouvoir- Wishing is power. The French version of where there is a will, there is a way.

10. Savoir, penser, rêver. Tout est là- To know, to think, to dream. That is everything.

Quotes about love.

Adesso dammi un'altra vita, un'altra gioventù, un'altra riga per guardarla e non tirarla su. Ho solo il cuore e la matita come passepartout.

I needed practice and fanfiction titles seemed to be pretty good guinea pigs!!

Anyway, these are some (actually very few) of the stuff I’ve read (and re-read) in the past few weeks following a pretty long hiatus from reading fics (if that makes sense). The exceptions would be 12th Winter, which is @minatu​ ‘s mafia AU doujinshi, and Cherry Kisses and Dark Magic and Teleos Magna, which I wrote (and still haven’t finished, in TM’s case………hahahahahah- *cold sweating*)

Here are the other fics!

YOI Fan Rec Friday

Thank you for all your recs this week! I can’t wait to read them all during my trip in Europe! If you didn’t know, I will be gone from June 17th-July 9th and may not be able to make fan rec friday or other lists while I’m gone! I will be bringing my laptop so hopefully I will be able to, but if not you now know why!

To Yuri. by poppysicle, Mature, 5.2k (WIP)
Dear Yuri,
If you’re reading this, it will mean either two things happened. It was not in our control or you found this on accident. Before you start to freak out, we want you to know that we love you more than anything in this world. Our love for you has grown stronger than for each other. We will do anything for you if you asked us too. I found myself praying every night after finding you that we want to keep you safe.
You’ve become a big piece of our small, messed up life. We hope one day you will have a better one after being with us. We care about your happiness and well being. Please, never forget our time together and the love we built with one another.
To help, I am going to tell you a story about how our family became one.

Yuuri is an elite, the best of the Time Arbitrators. As the youngest member of the formidable Scythes Squadron, he swears loyalty to the all-encompassing Organization. At least until whispers of a silver haired man and long-buried secrets reach his ears. Even shadows can hide in light, and as the cold truth reveals itself, so can forbidden questions.

Ah, deceit. by Nikiforlove, Gen, 11k (WIP)
Viktor is the head of the Russian Mafia, charming, sleek and confident. He’s a very hasty man, and he prefers fieldwork over office work, and Yakov’s pissed. Surprise, surprise! Yakov signed a contract with the Yakuza without Viktor’s consent, to get him a right hand man who would maybe, just maybe, make up for what Viktor lacks. Oh boy, Viktor is pissed, he’s fuming. Damn, all he wanted was to go on a date with that bespectacled cutie he met the other day at the cafe.

Precocious by EmmyLynna, Gen, 109k (WIP)
Whatever Viktor Nikiforov wanted, he would get. And the moment his eyes locked onto the cute omega, he knew that Yuuri Katsuki would be his. That’s why during recess he marched over, held his hands, and proclaimed, “Yuuri, starting today, I’m your alpha and you’re my mate!” Much to the shock of their classmates and teachers. So what if he was only seven-years-old and Yuuri was six?

Victor’s Moving Castle by weeaboobiwrites, Teen, 28k (WIP)
A pointless war, a moving castle, a contract sealed in fire and a hood that can’t be removed. Yuuri can’t face anyone, Victor is an empty man with a deadline, and Yuri doesn’t know what he did to deserve being forced into the role of a wingman. This is the story of two boys, two curses, a cure that’s right in front of everyone’s noses, and the journey along the way.

D'abord j'ai perdu des amis… J'ai perdu du temps. Ensuite je t'ai perdu toi aussi, pourtant dieu sait que dans ma vie tu fais la pluie et le beau temps. J'sais plus comment les attraper, les mains qu'on me tend. Bien sur que je voudrais m'arracher, des bras de la solitude qui m’enlaçait trop souvent. Si mon coeur est en verre, comment voir à travers, franchement, j'sais pas moi même ce que je ressens.
—  Hoshi : Comment je vais faire
Quand je regarde ma vie et sa couleur secrète, j’ai en moi comme un tremblement de larmes. Comme ce ciel. Il est a la fois pluie et soleil, midi et minuit. Je suis tout cela à la fois. Je suis sûr qu'il est des moments où vous ne me reconnaîtriez pas. Extrême dans le malheur, démesuré dans le bonheur, je ne sais pas dire.
